If we are to truly get on the fast track to ending the AIDS epidemic, we need to surround vulnerable populations – in particular adolescent girls and young women – with comprehensive support and services in every aspect of their lives. Time and again, research and experience have shown that holistic, multi-sectoral responses lead to better outcomes for women and girls, and therefore for their families and their communities.

In the dance and in the song and in the drum, you will see a celebration of the beauty of Native ways. You will see a stubborn attachment to tradition, without resistance to innovation and reinvention. This is a celebration of living traditions. But today, today, we celebrate the here and now. Today we celebrate contemporary Indian Country in song and dance.

Remarks by Ambassador Hamamoto at Refugee Youth and Future She Deserves Event

Refugee-Youth_FSD-Event

Today, I’m excited that we are combining the efforts of The Future She Deserves – our Mission’s signature initiative to promote gender equality – with the Global Refugee Youth Consultation. After what you’ve gone through, many would have lost hope. But you didn’t. You engaged with peers, international organizations, and government leaders. You developed recommendations on what should be done to provide the support you need. You’ve made your voices heard and, as a result, you are role models for others. At a time when we’ve never had more young people in the world – far too many of them forced to flee their homes and seek refuge and safety elsewhere – thank you for reminding us of the value and power of youth so that we can take your feedback and commit to doing all we can to give you the future you deserve.

Ambassador Hamamoto praised the participants, highlighting President Obama’s challenge to double the number of apprentices in the U.S. by 2019.
